Kakashi Character Analysis
Ah… even though Naruto has ended, I sometimes revisit the series and watch or read my favorite parts. I can’t help it! I still have some attachment to the series. Although a lot of parts aren’t to my liking, I still liked the series overall. Especially the characters.
During a break today, I was watching Naruto Shippuden (the episodes with Kakashi and Obito fighting), and I was inspired to write this post because 1) I love Kakashi’s character growth (considering what he’s been through) and 2) I love Kakashi as a character (he’s so cool! /kyaaaa).
Kakashi was known as a child prodigy and his father was an elite Konoha shinobi. Kakashi grew up with an elitist attitude, and he was quite sassy. I mean, just like at him here when he was just a kid about to enter the academy:
Then his father committed suicide because he was treated poorly by the villagers, and Kakashi changed. He became bitter and emotionless. He believed that the mission comes first, even if it means your comrades die because you choose the mission over them. However, Kakashi once again goes through a transformation when he decides to believe in Obito’s belief that comrades come first.
